In 2008, a new system for the visualization and control of the process of pumping water from the wells S1, S2, and HV3 was implemented at the Kofola production plant in Mnichovo Hradiste. To control the process itself (water pumping and distribution), three Teco programmable controllers were installed in the plant's industrial control cabinets. Each cabinet is equipped with graphic panels to locally control and monitor the water pumping process.
To centrally control and visualize the water pumping process, the Reliance SCADA/HMI system is used. For this purpose, an easy-to-use Reliance visualization application has been created. It allows the operator to display the entire process of water pumping and distribution. Also, the states of individual measured quantities and the states of individual process actuators can be displayed. The water pumping process is visualized and controlled by Reliance 4 Control installed on the operator's PC. It can be accessed over the corporate intranet using a Web-based interface, too. Communication between the PLCs and Reliance is provided via Ethernet. The project was implemented by the ELPRO Kolin company.
